Tres Leches Cake
About this Cook
I've been cooking for as long as I can remember (as a matter of fact, I remember my first meal at 11; fried chicken, corn on the cob and mashed potatoes) but recently I have found that cooking is my "creative outlet".
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking just about anything, I especially love figuring out things that people may not have tried and I try to surprise their taste buds.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom's home made cinnamon rolls, they've never been reproduced.
My cooking triumphs
I've conquered cakes!
My cooking tragedies
My first meal mentioned above was TERRIBLE. I couldn't figure out why the chicken didn't look like KFC chicken so I kept it frying for a very, very long time, until it was brown. By then it was more like chicken jerky ;)

Perfect Flourless Orange Cake
I use a springform pan, and treat this a little more like a cheesecake by baking it in a 1" water bath. Also, after the oranges are cool enough to handle, I dissect them and remove as much of the seeds, strings and white pith that I can. That helps alleviate some of the bitterness.

Tres Leches (Milk Cake)
This is the first Tres Leches Cake I have made and so far it looks FABULOUS! I did separate my eggs and beat the whites... but when I went to add them to the "flour mixture" as suggested, they had separated into foam and whites, so it was rather gooey, but the cake batter turned into a cake! I cut the top off to make it flat and have been dipping the pieces into the milk mixture, and that's tasty, so I can only imagine what this is going to taste like in the morning!!! Yay!!!

Something about the grill's heat brings out the best flavor in the simplest chicken recipe.
